Sen. Scott on Biden’s Handling of Afghanistan: ‘Has Time Come to Exercise’ the 25th Amendment

Sen. Scott on Biden’s Handling of Afghanistan: ‘Has Time Come to Exercise’ the 25th Amendment

“Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office or has time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?”

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) is the first politician, from what I’ve seen on social media, to bring up the 25th Amendment concerning Biden’s handling of Afghanistan.

Of course, that means we would have Kamala Harris as president. Is that a better option?

Biden will finally address the nation at 3:45 PM ET.

One of my Senators thinks she’s doing a good deal stopping wasteful spending while supporting this ZERO.

What in the world is Joe Biden doing?

What we knew he (or his owners) would do if installed in the White House: Destroying America and handing the remains on a silver plate to our enemies.

Make no mistake: Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi et. al., they are all enemies of America as you know it, as you love it.
They are traitors.

    Worse are the media traitors – including Hollywwod. But for them, the likes of these people could not survive public scrutiny.

    Maybe I shouldn’t be telling tales on myself. But, what the hell. I live my real life like nothing really matters, so why not.

    I’m 58, going on 59. I’m dating a 25 year old. I was also dating a 24 year old and a 19 year old, but the 25 y.o. found out and, well.

    Yes. Girls. Der.

    I just bought her a Benz. And a couple of grand on jewelry. Not an S class, BTW, because S classes suck. A good, solid C class.

    Because when I see headlines competing for my attention like a military aircraft was shot down fleeing Afghanistan by Uzbekistan and Bella Hadid wore a see-through dress and Brittney Spears is relevant again I’m convinced the end of the world can’t be far off.

    Maybe the Germans had an excuse. But when I see the Weimar Republic on the horizon, I’m spending my money while it’s still worth something. I can trade the jewelry, dubloons (you think I’m kidding about the Spanish gold) and bullion for food. As opposed for trying to buy a loaf of bread with a wheel barrow of worthless cash.

    As far as the 25 y.o. that’s a strategic move on my part, too. Are two crippled geriatrics teaming up after the fall going to do well after the apocalypse? On 31 August I fall from 100% to 75% disabled (VA). She’s a smoking hot goddess (I have that on good authority from one of my enlisted ordie types that I like hanging around) and she’s athletic. Good at martial arts.

    She also doesn’t mind when I buy more knives for my collection. As long as I buy her one or two as well.

    She’s a keeper. Tomorrow we’re going to the gun range. Depending on what she likes I’ll buy it for her. And some people might say I wasted my money on girls and liquor. But when the s*** hits the fan, and it will, all that jewelry, blades, and those guns I bought her will keep both of us in beans and jeans.

      Arminius in reply to Arminius. | August 16, 2021 at 5:31 pm

      Basically, I’m living life like there’s no tomorrow. Because I don’t know if there will be. I see helos airlifting Americans out of Kabul like it’s Saigon, and I have to wonder what I did with my life for the last half century?

      Now I’m waiting for a call from her mom. I hurt her feelings because she found out about the other girls. Like I said, she’s a keeper. I wasn’t really sure until I watched her handle a blade. Now I’m scared of her, so the other girls are history.

      thetaqjr in reply to Arminius. | August 16, 2021 at 6:45 pm

      Seems like you’ve placed yourself squarely in the middle of a late onset, middle aged crisis of a re-bullion..

      Do you address her as “chick”?

      She call you “Pump “?

        Arminius in reply to thetaqjr. | August 16, 2021 at 8:38 pm

        I did address her as “chick” until about 20 minutes ago when I found out she wasn’t amused. Just got back from dinner. It was, kinda fun. I don’t think she took it as hard as you. But she told me to cut it out, and I said OK.

        Life is just easier if I do what she tells me to do.

          Arminius in reply to Arminius. | August 16, 2021 at 8:42 pm

          She told me to get her a butterfly pendant.

          I said OK.

          She told me to get her a Mercedes Benz.

          I said OK.

          I drew the line at the Ferrari.

I’m wishing Biden gets better because the term “President Harris” scares me far more…. that woman is an ignorant, hateful loon.

Scott is playing right into Obama’s plan. Guess he missed where
Harris bragged she was the last one who left the room when the decision to bug out of Afghanistan as quickly as possible was made.

Biden is not making the decisions. He’s a puppet. The miscalculations were made by the behind the scenes puppet masters.

Comrade Biden is and was always intended to be an avatar and place holder for who Obama and Jarret picked to be their real puppet in the WH. Harris.

Playing right into the Dems hands is what the Stupid Party always does.

    CommoChief in reply to JHogan. | August 16, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    Agreed. I don’t see an upside to the talk about the 25th amendment. This is a uniparty/establishment play to obscure their own role.

    Every SR military, Intel, State Dept official who facilitated the happy crappy narrative about the Afghan government and Afghan Military needs to be held to account. Likewise their allies and cheerleaders in Congress, the executive branch and the rotating grifters who flit from govt to the private sector and back again.

    Now if you want to make an impression and an impact that will create a deterrent then muster the courage to impeach both Biden and Harris. Purge the SR officials in the DoD, State Dept, Intel and yes Congress who facilitated the entirely predictable results in Afghanistan.

    Less than that is a cop out and a deflection of their collective responsibility. We already see the finger pointing and rush to disclaim responsibility by these establishment elites. Don’t focus on Biden exclusively, if you do you are playing into the uniparty establishment.

      Dathurtz in reply to CommoChief. | August 16, 2021 at 2:09 pm

      It lets us know where Senator Scott stands.

      Purge the SR officials in the DoD, State Dept, Intel and yes Congress who facilitated the entirely predictable results in Afghanistan.

      Indeed. The Biden* junta is the outgrowth of the Uniparty, so even if Biden* and Harris were removed the Hydra would live on and grow still more heads to replace them.

      Eddie Baby in reply to CommoChief. | August 16, 2021 at 3:40 pm

      The upside is that an illegitimate president is removed from office, and all Biden’s enablers will have to defend their behavior for the past eighteen months. It also sets up Harris for taking the brunt of responsibility for the continuing failures of this administration. It also encourages all the people trying to audit the 2020 election and prove Dems stole the election.

        Katy L. Stamper in reply to Eddie Baby. | August 16, 2021 at 3:50 pm

        I agree, Eddie Baby!

        thetaqjr in reply to Eddie Baby. | August 16, 2021 at 6:51 pm

        A real upside would be to kidnap all their asses, put them on a C140, or whatever is fastest, and land them on Kabul’s strips.

        Ms. Stamper can be charged with defending the kidnappers.

        CommoChief in reply to Eddie Baby. | August 16, 2021 at 7:02 pm

        Eddie,

        Biden, as tragic as his decisions are, is basically a stand in puppet. Focusing on the puppet allows the puppeteers to skip.

        Why offer cover via the 25th amendment? Why not impeach the lot? Why not purge the bastards at DoD, State, IC and Congress?

        Why do want to carry water for the establishment? Why are you willing to let them skate? By all means remove Biden but via impeachment.

        The use of the 25th amendment is basically saying ‘old Joe is crazy and it’s all his fault’. He nears his share of blame but so do hundreds of others in the establishment that you, apparently, are comfortable excusing yet again. Eff that.

      The hell with the 25th amendment – impeachment is the remedy.

      thetaqjr in reply to CommoChief. | August 16, 2021 at 7:33 pm

      I don’t understand how other folks here claim, on the one hand how stupid the administration is, and on the other, have agents behind the scenes who can manipulate strings in such deft concert.

        henrybowman in reply to thetaqjr. | August 17, 2021 at 1:11 am

        Hey, do you remember the scene in Indiana Jones where the giant Egyptian dude whips out his big sword and starts twirling it around at lightning speed, “manipulating it in deft concert?”

        But he does it to threaten Indiana, who simply yanks out a revolver and plugs him cold? “Stupid.”

        The point is, they have very stupid ideas, which they are extremely clever at carrying out, but no amount of cleverness can make the ideas themselves succeed.

“Biden is not making the decisions. He’s a puppet. The miscalculations were made by the behind the scenes puppet masters.”

That’s all the more dangerous because they can be more reckless and daring knowing that Biden will get the blame and no one even knows for sure who they are.

    henrybowman in reply to UserP. | August 17, 2021 at 1:43 am

    From the very beginning, every aspect of he Biden campaign and *residency has put me in mind of a 1974 short story called “The People’s Choice,” by William Jon Watkins:

    An ad man is given a challenge: given unlimited funds, can he make a short, fat, ugly woman President of the United States? Throughout the campaign the candidate is never seen. The slogan is “Vote For The Candidate Nobody Knows…”

    It’s a mere eight brief (pulp) pages and can be read here starting on page 143.

    See if you don’t agree.

If Republican lead the charge, it won’t happen. Let Harris go down with him.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Petrushka. | August 16, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    GOP wants Harris to go up now, so the public knows her for what she is. If she stays hidden and can hide behind Biden’s failures, then she can squeeze out at least one Obama-esque term on “hope and change” again.

Biden is Toast. LBJ had more support running for a 2nd term.

“Biden will finally address the nation at 3:45 PM ET”

Words are meaningless noise written for him. What matters is what these traitors do. Analyze actions not words. Assume an agenda that aligns to the actions and things make sense.

Despite the fact that it has no chance of passage, Republicans should press such a bill immediately, while Biden’s taint is still fresh. I know it’s impossible to embarrass Democrats, but it’s not impossible to make them look craven and self-serving in front of the electorate.

    henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | August 16, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    Oh yeah — and they should demand bipartisanship “for the good of the country.”

    We elected Trump over the objections of the left, the swamp and the GOPe. ANYTHING is possible.

    Don’t give up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | August 16, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Press what kind of bill? There is no such thing as a bill to invoke the 25th amendment. Congress has no role in invoking it. It doesn’t get involved until after it’s been invoked, and the president has objected.

      henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | August 17, 2021 at 1:51 am

      Marjorie Taylor Greene claims she just filed actual articles of impeachment.
      At least some Republican is doing something.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | August 17, 2021 at 2:25 am

        Well, at least impeachment is something the House can do, so I suppose she’s taking over from that other idiot Green in the role of member who is constantly filing utterly futile impeachment motions just as a publicity stunt.

To be fair: while the illegitimate Biden* junta bears some responsibility (setting a hard departure date of 9/11/21 regardless of the conditions on the ground was sheer lunacy, and there appears to have been zero though as to the chance that the military hardware left behind could end up in the Taliban’s hands), this debacle was two decades in the making.

At some point after 9/11/01 the self-declared geniuses at the Pentagon and State Department decided that Afghanistan would willingly reject radical Islam in favor of woke intersectionality. Every decision they made since then treated Afghanistan like a “progressive” American college campus chock full of lefty students and faculty just waiting for the backwards college administration (the Taliban) to be replaced with more “enlightened” leadership. What we are seeing should shock no one.

So on this issue of who is responsible, the defenders of the Biden* junta have a point, although not the one they wanted to make. The policies that have led to disaster in Afghanistan were not initiated by the Biden* junta, but they are the core of the junta’s beliefs, and there is not the slightest sign they would have done anything different. The Pentagon and the State Department, for all of their expensive, fancy-sounding credentials they obtained at toney American schools, are utterly ignorant of history and contemptuous of anyone who is not exactly like them. While they would be loathe to admit it, they view themselves as gods who believe they can remake the world into their own image. That hubris – which is part of the Biden* junta’s DNA – is what created the disaster in Afghanistan. Nor is it totally unfair that the Biden* junta is left holding the bag, since they had a willing hand in the disaster.

    “… who is responsible …” ? Every senator and congressman currently serving and having served during the last 30 years (+) who failed to object to “never ending wars, police actions, and nation building”. …

    I suggest all readers send the following to their senators and congressman:

    “URGENT – WHO IS IN CHARGE … AT THIS MOMENT

    AT THIS MOMENT (hh:mm am/pm (zone)T; AUG. 16TH, 2021) – WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ? WHO IS ACTING AS THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF ? WHO IS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE INEVITABLE DEATHS OF AMERICAN MILITARY AND CIVILIANS IN AFGHANISTAN ?

    I HOLD YOU AMONG THOSE PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE.”

    Americans have a right to know whether they are now living in a failed state.

      That raises a very interesting question. Does Congress control the Deep State, or does the Deep State control Congress? I am thinking the latter is closer to the truth. The various government agencies are theoretically responsible to Congress and the President, but in practice these agencies often do as they please. Moreover, Congress seems willing to leave the details of implementing they laws they pass to the Deep State, which often ends up implementing something quite different from what was passed.

      When you have children running your government, it looks like the Biden administration, the Obama administration, and half of Congress.

      No joke, or exaggeration.

Whether the time has come to exercise the provisions the 25th or not has nothing to do with Scott. He gets no say in the matter, unless and until it’s already done and Biden files an objection. So it’s not for him to raise the question in the first place.

Let Harris and the cabinet consider whether they’ve got the clout to do it and make it stick. And let the Republicans not volunteer to help. Why make it easy for the Dems. This is their mess, let them deal with it.

I agree with Milhouse.

Remember, QueMala Harris invoking the 25th Amendment won’t remove Sniffy Joe from office, it will just put her in the position of Acting President. Who believes Biden is actually making the decisions now? Who believes Harris would actually be making the decisions after invoking the 25th? Read the 25th Amendment. Unless he resigns, dies, or is impeached, Biden will officially be President until January 20th, 2025.

I’m really happy about no mean tweets. I know Afghan people are falling out of C-17 landing gear wells, but we are now restoring norms!
